Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Philadelphia — Dario Saric scored 24 points to pace all five starters in double figures, and the Philadelphia 76ers won their fourth in a row, 108-92 over the slumping New York Knicks on Monday night.

J.J. Redick had 18 points, Joel Embiid scored 17 and Robert Covington and Ben Simmons each chipped in 13 for the 76ers, who won their 10th straight at home to remain in playoff position in the Eastern Conference.

Philadelphia, which never trailed, began the night in eighth place in the East, two games clear of Detroit.

Pelicans 118, Pistons 103

Detroit — Anthony Davis had 38 points and 10 rebounds to help New Orleans beat Detroit in another one of his strong performances against the Pistons.

Davis is averaging 30.4 points per game against the Pistons, his highest total against an NBA team. He scored a career-high 59 against them nearly two years ago.

Clippers 114, Nets 101

New York — Lou Williams scored 20 points, DeAndre Jordan had 16 points and 17 rebounds, and they got plenty of help from a balanced Los Angeles lineup in a win over Brooklyn.

Los Angeles put seven players in double figures and shot 56.5 percent from the field in its fourth win in five games, bouncing back nicely from a loss in Philadelphia.

Bulls 105, Magic 101

Chicago — Zach LaVine broke for a tiebreaking dunk after stealing an inbounds pass in the closing seconds, Lauri Markkanen scored 21 points and Chicago beat Orlando.
